Posted Wed Aug 1, 2012, 8:16am Subject: looking for a simple electronic water shutoff
i've got a commercial machine hard plumbed in my house. After one burst water filter a failed procon water pump, and leaky boiler gasket, I'd like to plumb in a electronic water valve inline with my machine that shuts off water when the machine is not in use.
I know something simple must exist, but unable to find anything online other than a sprinkler control valve.
I've got 3/8 John Guest type poly line, soft copper line all before my water filtration and that I can splice into. I already have a manual ball valve at the wall, just looking for an electronic controlled valve.
Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thanks again for this great forum. I really enjoy perusing the posts and find solitude in other espresso fanatics.
